torque is the work . non-japanese inline four bangers find it naturally.
I made a funny. anybody get it?

your foot finds it for your car: the slowest rpm to get what you want. Screaming weirdos enignes don't understand and called it moderate to heavy acceleration...

a big diesel at 40 tons loaded is getting 224 mtpg (mile tons per gallon) all while never seeing much more than 2k rpm. The ultimate workers has no concept of this "perfect throttle".It is never a concern. all else who ask have pansy driveline. "Statistics" you seek will only reveal the most common driveline. Most likely that dumbo inline four cylinder...and those are in the moderate to heavy acceleration to get a thing called torque doing the work...
the concept of hypermiler would not exist if we had real engines....
